The Anonymous Widower

Match Nineteen – Charlton 0 – Ipswich 1

Unlike Bournemouth, Charlton was only a short trip across the Thames. I actually crossed on the Emirates Air Line.

It was then a short ride on a 486 bus to Charlton station.

As I set out, I thought we might have had a chance of a win, but hopes were beginning to fade as a close fought match, which had produced 40 shots according to the BBC, was coming to the end.

But then substitute, Noel Hunt playing his first match for Ipswich, came on and a few minutes after suffering a blood injury, he managed to drill home his first goal for nearly two years.

We certainly all celebrated long after the match.

Getting home everything seemed to be locked solid, so I walked to Woolwich and got the ferry to my side of the River.

I wonder how many people have flown to a football match and then taking a ferry home.

At least, when I got home around five, I had the pleasure of knowing that Ipswich are now up to second in the Championship.

I also looked at the map after I got home.

Note the O2 in the top left, with North Greenwich station just below and The Valley in the bottom right, with Charlton station close by.

I would estimate that next time, I get stuck there, it will take about half-an-hour to walk to North Greenwich station for the Jubilee line.
